There is a $35.00 fee payable to Charlotte United which covers the cost of the test as well as scoring. Your statement will reflect this charge.

The PLAN is a practice test for the ACT which assesses student's academic standing and helps them investigate the full range of career options. It measures the same academic skills as the ACT (English, Math, Reading, and Science Reasoning). There is a $35.00 fee payable to Charlotte United which covers the cost of the test as well as the scoring. Your statement will reflect this charge.
ACT: All Juniors are required to take the ACT Assessment, which measures academic achievement in the areas of English, Math, Reading and Science Reasoning, on April 13, 2013 (registration deadline is March 8, 2013).

NCEMPT: The North Carolina Early Math Placement Test will be given to all students in Algebra II and above on Wednesday, May 15, 2013. Every high school graduate, upon entering the University of North Carolina at one of the sixteen universities or the Fifty-nine community colleges, will be given a mathematics placement test. This test will determine the student's entry level for enrollment in collegiate mathematics. By having high school students experience a test that is similar in content to the actual placement test, the NCEMPT program provides each student with a realistic early warning of their current mathematical level.
In summary, by the time your student graduates from Charlotte United Christian Academy, he or she will have taken:
- PSAT/NMSQT (2 times)
- SAT (2 times)
- NCEMPT (2 or 3 times depending on the student’s math track)
Any transfer student must submit proof of scores to satisfy the graduation requirements for the North Carolina Competency Test Program for Juniors.
